Wagner (COVID-19 protocols) will remain out Tuesday against the Rockets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
All six Wizards players currently in the league's health and safety protocols will remain out Tuesday, though due to a string of postponements, it will only be their second missed game. The Wizards also play Wednesday in New Orleans, so it's likely that all six players will miss that contest, as well.
Wagner (COVID-19 protocols) is out Sunday against the Spurs.
Wagner will continue to sit out due to health and safety protocols. Washington will have between eight and 11 players available for Sunday.
Wagner (COVID-19 protocols) won't play in Friday's game against Milwaukee.
The Wizards are currently hampered with COVID-19, and as a result, Wagner and seven of his teammates won't play Friday. Robin Lopez will dominate the work at center in the meantime. Per Fred Katz of The Athletic, coach Scott Brooks doesn't expect any of the players in the COVID-19 protocol to play on the upcoming four-game road trip, so Wagner may be unavailable until at least Jan. 29 against the Hawks. It's worth keeping an eye on Washington's lengthy injury report for the near future.
Wagner (COVID-19 protocols) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.
Wagner and Rui Hachimura are both questionable for Wednesday's game after entering into the league's health and safety protocols. If the two big men are forced to miss any time, Robin Lopez would likely see an increased role.
Wagner played a season-high 20 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 128-124 loss to the Heat, putting up 13 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go with seven rebounds, one assist and one steal.
After starting center Thomas Bryant (knee) exited two minutes into the first quarter, head coach Scott Brooks split the playing time at the five relatively evenly between Robin Lopez (21 minutes) and Wagner. While Lopez's reputation as a trusted defender near the rim would likely make him the top candidate to enter the starting five if Bryant misses time, Wagner might be the more fantasy-friendly option if Brooks continues to proceed with a timeshare at center. On Sunday, Bryant is slated to undergo an MRI, the results of which should provide insight into how long he might be sidelined.
Wagner is starting at power forward Thursday against the Pistons with Rui Hachimura (eye) out, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Wagner will get a good chance to show what he can do, as he'll be fighting for reserve minutes in the frontcourt. In the preseason opener, he posted 13 points, seven rebounds and four steals in 18 minutes.
Wagner had two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one steal in seven minutes during Sunday's 118-110 loss to the Nets.
Wagner was one of two Wizards who saw just single-digit minutes. Starting center Thomas Bryant was sensational in this one, which resulted in Wagner remaining glued to the bench for the vast majority of the game. Wagner could be in line for a little bit more playing time during Monday's matchup versus the Pacers given that Bryant earned 37 minutes against the Nets. Nevertheless, Wagner is merely a dart throw in most daily fantasy leagues.
Wagner will come off the bench Friday against the Hawks, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
With Thomas Bryant (foot) back, Wagner will transition back into his usual reserve role. Across his past 12 games coming off the bench, Wagner is averaging 6.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 16.8 minutes.
Wagner will start Wednesday's tilt with Portland, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Wagner will get the start in place of Thomas Bryant, who's out for rest purposes. Wagner's impressed in his second professional season and has amassed averages of 9.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 19.1 minutes per game while shooting 56.7 percent from the field, 34.3 percent from three and 80.6 percent from the line.
Wagner was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.
Wagner was ejected during the middle of the fourth quarter after receiving back-to-back technical fouls for an altercation with the referees. He finished with six points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, one steal and one assist in 16 minutes on the night and should be allowed to return in full for Friday's tilt with the Cavaliers.
Wagner put up 19 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Grizzlies.
Wagner recently returned from an ankle injury that forced him to miss 25 games, but looked no worse for wear in this one. Thomas Bryant is out indefinitely because of a stress reaction in his right foot. The Wizards will likely take it easy with Bryant, so Bertans could see a solid uptick in his workload. The 22-year old is a standard league asset in only 20.2 minutes per game, so he's worth a look for teams in search of a big man.
Wagner (ankle) played 12 minutes off the bench Monday in the Wizards' 125-117 loss to the Warriors, finishing with eight points (4-5 FG) and two rebounds.
Back in action after a five-week absence, Wagner's playing time was unsurprisingly limited, but he fared well during the minutes he received. The Wizards ran a bloated 11-man rotation Monday, but more playing time should be available for all three of the Washington bigs that have recently returned from injuries -- Wagner, Thomas Bryant and Rui Hachimura -- once all have their restrictions lifted. Gary Payton, Ian Mahinmi and Isaac Bonga all played 11 minutes or fewer and are all candidates to be excised from the rotation in the near future.
Wagner (ankle) will be available off the bench Monday against Golden State.
The Wizards did not list Wagner on their initial injury report, and the team has now confirmed that the big man will be back to availability Monday for the first time since Dec. 10. Wagner will come off the bench and face a minutes restriction as the team eases him back into game action.
Wagner (ankle) is not on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Warriors.
The Wizards haven't officially commented on Wagner's status, but the implication is that he could be back in the mix Monday night after a lengthy injury layoff. Wagner hasn't played since Dec. 10. so if he is cleared to play, he'll likely have a minutes restriction.
Coach Scott Brooks said Friday that Wagner (ankle) could retake the court sometime next week, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The 22-year-old has been sidelined by the left ankle sprain since Dec. 10 but appears to be closing in on his return. Wagner was selected to the World Team of the Rising Stars Challenge and Brooks indicated he expects the young forward to be able to play in that game Feb. 14.
Coach Scott Brooks said Saturday that Wagner (ankle) has resumed running and is taking part in conditioning work, but the big man has yet to receive clearance to practice.
Meanwhile, Brooks noted that rookie Rui Hachimura (groin) has returned to full practice and could be available for game action by the end of the upcoming week. With Brooks acknowledging that Wagner's potential return is further away, fantasy managers who have been stashing the second-year center out of Michigan during his extended absence shouldn't expect him back before early February at the soonest. Wagner has been out since Dec. 10 with a sprained left ankle.
Coach Scott Brooks said Wednesday that Wagner (ankle) has been cleared for non-contact activities, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
While this is an important step in Wagner's recovery, it still could be "a couple of weeks" until he returns to games. More information on his timetable should emerge as he continues to his various milestones in his recovery.
Wagner (ankle) could remain out another three weeks, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Wagner hasn't shedded his walking boot yet, as it's reported that the Michigan product will have it on at least another week. Coach Scott Brooks mentioned Tuesday that once the boot is removed, Wagner will likely need another 10 to 14 days to fully recover, pushing a possible return to a total of three weeks. Wagner hasn't played since logging 26 minutes against Charlotte on Dec. 10, a span of nine straight games. The 2018 first-round selection was averaging 11.6 points and 6.0 rebounds prior to his ankle injury.
Wagner (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Heat.
Wagner continues to recover from the left ankle sprain and will miss his ninth straight contest. Ian Mahinmi should continue to start at center since Thomas Bryant (foot) is also still sidelined.
Wagner (ankle) is out for a least one week, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Rather than continue to label Wagner as day-to-day, the Wizards have decided to rule him out for a week in advance as a result of his sprained left ankle. In his absence, Ian Mahinmi, Davis Bertans, Admiral Schofield and Isaac Bonga all remain candidates to see expanded roles.
